The Department of Chemistry invites you to the seminar in*“N**ANOMATERIALS
FOR **M**EDICAL **A**PPLICATIONS**”*BY *Z**ORAIDA **A**GUILAR**, P**H**D, MS
**C *AT Escaler Hall, July 9, 2013 4:30 – 6:00 pm

Abstract:

Recent advances in a variety of medical applications of nanomaterials are
evolving from prototype to real-world application. This presentation is
designed to provide an overview of the main types of nanomaterial used in
medical application today such as semiconductor nanomaterials, magnetic
nanomaterials, metal nanoparticles, carbon nanomaterials, liposomes, etc.
The presentation will touch on the following topics regarding nanomateials:
(1) examples that are relevant in medicine, (2) synthesis and
characterization, (3) modifications to make them biocompatible, (4)
nanobiosensors, (5) targeted drug delivery for nanomaterials, (6)
nanomedical devices and structures which are used in the development of
implantable medical devices and structures such as nanorobots, (7)
nanopharmacology which involves engineering nanomaterials for
pharmaceutical applications, and (8) nanotoxicology and remediation . A few
examples of nano-enabled drugs and their current applications worldwide
will be presented. An overview of nanomaterials status in ovarian cancer,
breast cancer, infectious diseases, implants, and other applications will
be included. This presentation will serve as a guide to various important
aspects of nanomaterials in order to hasten the realization of its
far-reaching applications in medicine.
